Sixty-seven years after the Holocaust, genocide and crimes against humanity continue as repressive regimes and cruel perpetrators target and kill innocent people around the world. In this symposium, today’s established and emerging leaders explored what can be done to prevent these atrocities in the future.
The Museum also released the findings of a new public poll by Penn Schoen Berland that sheds light on American attitudes toward and awareness of genocide and on what inspires people to take action against it.
